Tuition & Fees

Spruce Tree Montessori School is a year round educational experience.

Our innovative calendar offers the best opportunity for supportive, continuous learning for children ages 2 1/2 to 14, preK – 8th grade.

Our school year is comprised of six academic sessions and six breaks; a 7 weeks on / 2 weeks off template, September through August.

Tuition and fees at Spruce Tree vary depending on the program options you choose. Tuition is billed per academic session, invoiced every other month, September, November, January, March, May and July (6 payments over the course of the year)

There is a financial commitment prior to your child’s first day of school: an enrollment deposit is due in April to reserve your child’s spot in the fall cohort and a materials fee is due August 1. There are no additional application, school supply or activity fees.

Spruce Tree provides all student school supplies (pencils, paper, notebooks, journals, art supplies, etc) for the year as well as a healthy daily morning snack for all students. Our classrooms are equipped with the essential collection of Montessori-approved materials as defined by the American Montessori Society.

All students (preschool through 8th grade) attend school five days per week. We enjoy 7-hour school days, 8:30 am – 3:30 pm, 192 days per year, 7 weeks on / 2 weeks off, September through August. There are no calendared “early out” days and we do not close school for parent-teacher conferences. We do offer a half day preschool/kindergarten program, 8:30 am – 12:45 pm, Monday – Friday, if space is available.

Optional programs include extended day programs (before/after school), Hot Lunch, Swim, Climb and Ski Club; fees apply. Students and parents have unlimited access to the school library collection and all students receive an enrollment gift on the first day of school.
